Virtual doctor’s visits from the comfort of your home
Telemedicine is not insurance, but it may be a good supplement to your health insurance plan. It can provide convenience by saving you a trip to the doctor’s office or urgent care, and cost savings – up to $100 per doctor’s visit.
Telemedicine is best for diagnosing and treating routine, non-critical conditions you would otherwise visit your primary care physician or the urgent care for, such as:
Urinary tract infections
Pink eye and eye infections
Cold, bronchitis, flu
Allergies and hives
Skin dermatitis and eczema
Chicken pox and shingles
Poison ivy and poison oak
Stress, anxiety, depression
(Please note that specialist services may not be available to all members.)
Speak or Skype with real doctors – You get access to board-certified physicians, dermatologists and therapists with an average of 15 years of experience.
Fits most budgets – Pay just $15 for your virtual visit (plus the monthly fee).
No caps on virtual visits – Unlike health insurance plans, there’s no cap on the number of virtual doctor’s office visits.
Off-hours care – Clinics and urgent care centers have limited hours, but Telemedicine is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for virtual visits.
Stay home – The modern-day house call, when you’re not feeling well you can have a virtual doctor’s office visit without leaving the comfort of your home.
Take it with you – Access to medical professionals at the same low consultation fee even when you’re out of network.
Get prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy when eligible – Telemed doctors can write prescriptions as part of your treatment plan.
Anyone can sign up anytime – There’s no open enrollment period and no health questionnaire, anyone can apply anytime, and you won’t be charged more based on your age, sex, or health.
Telemedicine is not medical insurance – Telemed is not designed to replace medical insurance and cannot replace the benefits that major medical or alternative health insurance provides.
No hands-on exam – Being a virtual visit, there are limitations for the types of services, prescriptions and diagnoses that can be provided. For example, preventive care and general wellness exams aren’t able to be performed.
Less continuity of care – The remote doctor you work with doesn’t have the same level of insight into your background and health history as your primary care physician that may have been treating you or your family for many years.
